Part of the leading assessment company Korn Ferry, Talent Q is an assessment provider used by many big legal firms. Their tests are a little different, as the questions intuitively adapt to your capabilities. This means that the questions you are answering will get harder or easier depending on how you’re answering until it finds the right level for you. With just 16 minutes to complete the test, it’s important to work quickly and accurately through the questions. Below is a more comprehensive overview of the test packages Talent Q offers:
Talent Q elements
There are three tests: numerical, verbal and logical, but you may not have to complete all three (it depends on the role you’re applying for). Each test has between 12-15 questions, which vary in complexity. These tests are often used in the recruitment of managerial and high-level positions.
Talent Q dimensions
Talent Q’s 25 minute personality test examines your personality by asking you to respond to 160 different statements across the following areas:
- Tasks and projects
- Drives and emotions
- People and relationships
Talent Q aspects and abilities
This series also has three different tests: verbal, numerical and checking. However, these are quick and easy online tests that each take between 5-10 minutes to complete.
Talent Q also offers a personality test, otherwise known as Styles, which is a competency-based questionnaire. It uses 16 different personality traits to determine what kind of character you are, and how suitable you are for the role you’re applying for.
